A 2001 Ford F-150 pickup driven by 21-year old Wilkes Barrett of Murfreesboro was traveling in the opposite direction. Both drivers say that they were in their own lane at the time of the crash.
The teen who was driving the Jeep was taken to St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital in a private vehicle. 42-year old Shannon Harradon of Lascassas was a passenger in the vehicle, but was not injured. In fact, the teen was the only one injured, and all three persons were wearing safety restraints.
